    I Need More Confidence!

    So ever since I was little I've been a chubby girl. As I went through my teen years I've had boyfriends and guys tell me I'm beautiful, but for some reason I never feel it. I wish I did have more confidence. Advice would be appreciated :)<3

    Well I have been a big girl for many years. Even at my smallest I was a 14-16. Once I met my partner, my weight shot up and I weighed my heaviest on our wedding day. He loves me for who I am but for a long time I couldnt. Now, I still shudder sometimes at unflattering sights of...

    Being plus sized is a challenge.

    You have a constant voice in your head telling you to lose weight and be a "normal" size. But then you also have a voice that tells you that you are beautiful and to be confident in who you are. But you can't forget the voices outside your mind, nagging, yelling and telling...

    Did Not Always Believe It

    I have been a size 18/20 from around the age of 15. Puberty hit me early (age 9). Even when I was still incredibly thin (and I was for quite a while), I always felt I had to lose 50 pounds. I never did anything to cause me to lose that weight, but I kept thinking...

    Supporting Plus Size

    I think size is a very big deal in this world. I for one, don't get what the big deal is. People need to look around and realize that in this life, just as you can become whoever you want, you can be whatever size you want. I'm a designer. Only just starting out this year. I am...

    I am not a size two, quite far from it actually.

    But, I am healthy and active. I am running again, and my goal is to be back on skis before the end of next year. It isn't the size of my jeans that is the greatest measure of who I am.
